Join us for a delightfully messy, hands-on, hypertufa trough-making workshop. Hypertufa is a lightweight, porous concrete mixture made from Portland cement, peat, and perlite that welcomes plants that like well-drained conditions such as sedums, hens and chicks, and rock-garden plants. Ideal for those with limited space, troughs can be planted as miniature gardens or to display choice specimens. Louise Clarke provides individual attention and step-by-step instructions from mixing and molding to aftercare.

Please bring a pair of heavy duty rubber gloves for working with the cement mixture. Dress in layers in clothing that can get dirty.
